Accor will open its third Sofitel hotel in Dubai on May 1.

Located in the shadow of Burj Khalifa, and close to Dubai Mall and the city’s financial district, Sofitel Dubai Downtown will target business and leisure travellers.

All 350 rooms feature spacious marble bathrooms, deluxe French amenities such as Lanvin and Hermes along with Sofitel’s MyBed – an all-feather bed and light duvet, free wifi and Nespresso coffee machine. The 76 suites offer panoramic views of either the world’s tallest tower or the coastline (Classic Room Burj Khalifa room pictured).

Accor intends to position the hotel as “an oasis of art” which will blend Victor Vasarel-inspired Op Art with Sofitel’s French culture. General manager Klaus Assmann, who was formerly managing Jumeirah Creekside, said it will offer distinguished luxury travellers “a piece of France in Dubai”.

F&B options include French-inspired meats in The Green Spices and The Red Grill, Open kitchens at Les Cuisines (all-day international dining) and the Lobby Patisserie. The 31st Bar will be a striking place for cocktails and the Op Art Lobby Bar will be a pre- or post-meeting spot, or starting point on a night out.

The Mosaic Pool and Arabic Lounge Bar will contain a 60-metre infinity pool with loungers awaits you during the day and a trendy Lebanese Lounge in the evening serves drinks and Lebanese delicacies.

The Sofitel So SPA and So FIT feature a full range of state-of-the-art equipment facilities, including treatment rooms, two hammams with private baths, scrub and deep relaxation room, dry sauna and steam room.

MICE will be a key component with 14 meeting rooms and a 600-person ballroom containing a carved wood ceiling that recalls traditional piroques, complemented by modern sound and video systems and full-service business centre. A special discovery rate is currently priced $258 from early May.
